Kym W Day 4 5:12 500m Much gentler pace and a different route ( more elevation). Really enjoyed this one even though it was dark and I was alone.

Day 5: Wrapped up this challenge with a long barefoot walk; 3090 metres around some of the reservoirs in Mount Tabor Park in Portland, Oregon. One gentleman even mentioned in passing "you've got to toughen up your feet sometime!"
Peter C encouraged this.

On the boardwalk after dinner. I asked my husband to carry my shoes so I could complete this challenge. (I am NOT a Tribesports fanatic, no sir!)

After a 5 mile run, took of shoes and socks, hung them around my neck and walked the rest of the way home. It had been raining, so I got to splash through some puddles barefoot!
